Rough setback for Elon Musk: New Tesla plant has to close again!

This is certainly not how Elon Musk imagined the first months of his new Tesla plant in Grünheide (Brandenburg).

According to a report by Bild, the giga factory, which only opened in March, has to close again!

Accordingly, the drastic measure is necessary because production is going much worse than planned. From the targeted 500,000 electric cars to be produced per year, one is miles away with 1000 vehicles produced per week.

In order for that to change, the processes have to be changed. In order to realize this project, the new plant is to be closed for two weeks.

Various changes are then planned during this closing time: Among other things, they apparently want to revise the shift system so that in future work will be carried out in three instead of two shifts.

In addition, the general manufacturing process is to be accelerated. So far, the cars have been at different production sites for up to three minutes. This time should be reduced to about half a minute.

As if the worries about the already opened production facility weren’t big enough, the future of the planned battery factory is apparently still in the stars. According to the report, there is simply a lack of employees for the expansion to manufacture car batteries planned for the end of the year. Of the 9,000 workers needed, 4,500 are still missing.

Because it is completely unclear whether Tesla will also be able to get battery production under control in the coming months, politicians are reacting. Grünheide’s mayor Arne Christiani (63) removed the corresponding development plan from the list of current concerns. As the Musk business in Brandenburg is currently doing, too many community representatives have doubts about the point of further development.

Perhaps the CEO has enough worries with the currently troubled plant, which has already been put into operation…
